    Ground Rules

    Our initial purpose is collective spiritual and educational enlightenment.

    We will undoubtedly engage in spirited discussion, but we will maintain that discussion with the highest regard and respect for each other.

    No belief system is beyond analysis here, and personal assaults of any form are not welcome.

    Should our momentum lead us towards it, we may embark on a secondary purpose of an anthology which syncretizes the work to take place here.

    With the above purpose in mind, we will make a practice of completing whatever prayer/meditation/libation required to ensure our minds and spirit are aligned prior to posting.

    From the collection of tremendous minds here, tremendous deeds can be accomplished.

    Brother Kemetkind ... i agree with all that you've said above.

    I'd like to add that our home, this community, has high standards in general, when it comes to our interacting in peaceful and respectful manners. In this particular forum, even more will be required of every participant. Consider it a classroom. Be respectful of each other. If you don't do this, you will not be allowed to particpate in this forum, and possibly in this community.

    Perhaps all Members that take part in this forum, should sign (post to this thread) indicating that they have read and agree to the Ground Rules? Word is Bond. Just a suggestion.

    :heart:

    I like all this stuff...but I am curious as to who possesses all this knowledge and history and linguistic study of the over 73 sects of Islam and the 72 plus sects of Christianity and Judaism to conduct these classes?

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Recovery Healing!

    Keita,

    In my view, you qualify as such a Pundit!

    Establish a 'Panel' of Knowledgeable Muslims?!

    In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    It's been a while since I last visited Destee. I trust things have been well with the Community? Allah Willing! As for the Islamic Study Group in question, what do you think about the establishment of a 'Panel' of knowledgeable Muslim men and women to conduct these classes?

    ASA

    Brother One9_Arch ... Welcome Home ... :wave:

    Based on the way things have gone so far, in the Metu Neter forum (which is the first and most active at this point), those most knowledgeable will automatically move toward the front of the class in these discussions. They know more, share more, etc.

    So please, feel free to share with us what you'd like, which will no doubt encourage others to do the same.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
